My 1st year teaching at CTK.
Previously was working in a BCE school with a high priority in ICT in classroom contexts.

Started with 26 children most have computers at home, access to iPhone and iPads, 1/2 students meeting MC or A by 1st Term in most learning areas.
3 Desktop computers - (I use 1 so I can have access to Printers. Other 2 donated to grade 1)
3 laptops for 2 hours in the morning session. (all other year levels had access to 3 laptops all day)
Persuaded admin that EYRS ICT is as important and equity issues allowed me to gain access to 3 laptops all day by Term 3.
Term 3 we were delivered 6 iPads to share between 2 Prep Classes!!
Apps were downloaded prior to receiving iPads. Apps for all year levels are on every iPad (multiplication, faction games on Prep iPads)
ICT teacher manages all aspects of iPads - downloading apps, updating and what and when we can buy Apps.
Thank you to Danielle for all her support and guidance!

Story Writing
Rotation task - write a story to match your drawing
Finding the letter that matches the sound they want to write.
Sounding out a word on paper, making the word on grid, put say word and hear if you were correct.
If the word doesnt sound right change the letters, add letters until you make the word you want.
Write your sentence on the grid and listen back to the sentence to check it sounds correct.
